Separated believed that the Spanish had a right to rule the new world because e they were superior. He states that the Spaniards were wise, talented, humane, and religion us. He branded the Indians with such terms as barbarians, cannibals, murderers, and cowards. Se pulled subscribed to the Aristotelian hierarchical theory on nature, which states implies a natural I order of superiority. Separated connects this theory by saying that the Indians’ are as inferior to the Spanish as “children to adults, or as women to men” (85).Separated was an a advocate for Indian enslavement. What he thought was because Of certain things.
He believed that t the Indians lacked belief in the Christian God and it was the responsibility of the Spaniards to spar dead Christian faith using whatever methods they felt was okay. Also Separated believed that the untreated of the natives made it necessary for more refined people like the Spanish to educate and dominate them.Enslavement by the Spaniards protected the weaker Indians from been g subjected to human sacrifice and cannibalism is another belief of Sepulchers. He believed that it was far better for the Spaniards to rule over the Indians, as they were “cultivated of h unman virtues and he true faith”, than to be ruled under their current form of government.
Lath cough Lass Cases didn’t believe the same as said earlier. Lass Cases originally participated in the conquests against the Indians, but the n began to question the ethics of the Spaniards’ treatment of the Indians.He felt they we re committing genocide. He believed in teaching Christianity, not ruining anyone’s peace with one another.
Lass Cases was a visionary who believed the entire human race was just one whole . Lass Cases felt that the Indians were not ignorant, although they were wallpapered and ha d a wealthy culture. He also acknowledges their form of government and ability to negotiate with others. One point that Lass Cases made was his similarity Of the Roman taking over Spain.
Lass Ca as states, “Thus we call such unbelievers barbarians, and they are so, because through lack of doctrine, faith and the grace which goes with them they cannot but abound in many corrupt cuts moms and suffer great defects in their laws and nations, as already proven for the Romans and other s” (6. 214217). He argues that the Spaniards defended themselves from the Romans who believe De that they needed to be to set free from barbarism.
Sharing peace within everyone was spreading g Catholicism and criticizing everyone because of what they don’t know was evil.He felt that the Indians were relaxed people that were easy to teach and willing to accept the Christian reel goon. He saw their artistic talent as part of their skill. While Lass Cases and Separated held oppose nag positions on the treatment of the Indians, they tended to agree with each other in certain areas.
Separated felt that the Indians were not teachable and did not have the Incense dive to better themselves. He based this on their simple art and their lack of desire in over t rowing a caste system.He argues that they preferred to be enslaved. This made the Spaniard ads superior to the Indians. Lass Cases believed that the Indians, could learn to be better. He felt t hat their art, music, and political systems were advanced for them. So therefore, both Lass Cases and Sepulchers’ purpose was to spread Christian unity. One focused on spreading it through peace and one focused on spreading it throb GHz subjugation of another civilization.
How they interacted with these new worlds was a matter of how they would conduct themselves in the future.
